Chambéry Airport

Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc Airport is the ideal starting point to set off and discover the Savoie Mont Blanc area. Next to Le Bourget Lake and surrounded by the mountains, the airport is in a perfect location for aviation enthusiasts.

Its proximity to premier ski resorts such as Courchevel, Meribel, Chamonix and Val D’Isere sees demand for flights to Chambéry during the winter months, when it ranks highly among French and European airports for general aviation traffic (private jets and helicopters).

Chambery Airport is one of many French regional airports which is available to private jet charter flights, it has some runway limitations due to its position and the mountains that surround the airport, which does limit some types of larger private jets. With still a huge variety of available aircraft types able to operate through Chambéry this is sure to be the best choice for a skiing break when using executive jets.

Chambery Airport is also known as Chambery Aix Les Bains or Chambery Savoie Airport. It is a small airport located in Viviers-du-Lac, France and is 6 km from Chambery city centre, around 60km from both Meribel and Courchevel, and 144km from Val D’Isere.

For the fastest arrival time to ski resorts, helicopter transfers are available from Chambery Airport, directly into Resort centres.

The airport has a dedicated private jet terminal which offers many services, including limousines transfers and helicopter flights to the ski resorts.

The first airport built on-site was inaugurated in 1934 as a joint military and civilian facility. In 1950, the idea of developing the airport of Bourget-du-Lac was launched to attract visitors to the local ski resorts. However it wasn’t until 1960 that it began its commercial activity under the name of Chambéry-Aix-les-Bains.
From 1964 to July 1, 2004, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Savoie handled the airport’s operations before awarding the contract for its management and development to a privately owned joint venture held by Keolis and Vinci Airports.
Under the management of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Savoie, the airport and its facilities were gradually renovated, particularly in 1990 just before the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville.
The construction of a new terminal dedicated to private flights in 2006 has contributed to the significant increase in air traffic, with over 30,000 annual private aircraft movements now recorded at Chambéry Airport.

Chambery Town

Located at the junction of two major Alpine valleys, the chateau town of Chambéry is an unjustly neglected gem. 12 km south of twinkling Lac du Bourget, it’s within easy reach of two regional parks and preserves many signs of former glory (Chambery was Savoy’s capital from the 13th century until 1563, when the Dukes relocated to Turin). Its surprisingly few visitors are rewarded with crowd-free museums, lively cafes and serene strolls along old streets. In the winter season Chambery becomes the main private aviation airport in France. Hundreds of ski lovers take advantage of  helicopter transfers to ski resorts like Courchevel, Méribel, Val Thorens, or Tignes and Val d’Isère, from the Chambéry private airfield. The helicopter transfers take just a few minutes, where as by car you would spend a few hours in traffic, especially during school holidays.
